Shane Patrick Hughes was born in Rabie Ridge, Johannesburg on June 7, 1996, to a father of Irish descent and a Coloured mother. His parents divorced when he was five years old. After the divorce, he went to live with his father in Kempton Park, Gauteng, attending predominantly white schools. However, he continued to visit his mother who still resided in Rabie Ridge, Johannesburg on a regular basis. The term “Eagle” originated from a group of his friends that resided in Rabie Ridge, Johannesburg and thus adopted it as a part of his stage name.
